Brexit results: all you need to know

The EU referendum result is Leave 52%, Remain 48%.

By New Statesman

The winner of the EU referendum is Leave, which took 52% of the vote to Remain’s 48%. As a result, the prime minister David Cameron has resigned. The Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn also faces a challenge to his leadership, after a no-confidence vote was tabled. 

At 72.2%, turnout for the EU referendum was higher than in the 2015 general election. For Brexit constituency analysis, see our in-depth article.

Brexit has had a negative impact on the financial markets, with expected effects on house prices and further consequences still being calculated.
